Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfetto Il rapporto qualità-prezzo è ottimo, offre tanta sicurezza nella frenata ed è perfetto in qualsiasi condizione climatica. Le garanzie che offrono questi freni è davvero impeccabile... Consigliatissimo per chi come me ha appena iniziato a praticare questo sport... 30 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Неплох, как набор запчастей для elixir 3 Имею 2 тормоза elixir 3, один elixir 1 - первый год работали более-менее. На второй сезон начали течь. Постоянно приходится прокачивать. пару раз перебирал калиперы. Текут только задние. Зимой тупят, рубашки гидролинии лопаются на морозе (от -15C) Помогает обмотать их изолентой. Одна ручка сосет воздух. Лучше брать хотя-бы elixir 7 (они работают без проблем уже 2 года - зима/лето) Elixir 1 заказал просто как набор запчастей - 40$ отличная цена за новый калипер, ручку, колодки и ротор бонусом. 14 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by parfait pour le dirt, slop, parck et street ce frein et très bien pour tous ce qui est "vtt freestyle" car la gaine est trés longue (je peut faire 10 tours de guidon) et donc envoyer plein de barspin et tallwhip. il est style on/off donc stop bien en urgence et n'est pas trop lourd. de plus pour ce prix ce n'est que du bonheur! cependant il faire attention a ce que la gaine ne fasse pas de noeud 03 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bon mais sans plus Bon produit, freinage progressif et sur. Le ressort qui ramène les plaquettes n'est pas assez puissant donc les plaquettes ont tendance à être très proche du disque et à faire du bruit de temps en temps. Les trous ovales de réglage ne sont pas assez large. J'ai été obligé de les élargir pour pouvoir régler la mâchoire correctement. 15 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by BRAKES Mazin control for 20 quid deffanatly not a long termer but as a replacement or stop gap AWSOME BUY BUY 06 May 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor feel. I have removed these from my bike as I could never get a good feel out of them, lever feel was bad, wouldn't apply pressure till right at the end of their stroke. The bite of the brake didn't seem to be there at all and took time to stop. 06 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by неплохо в принципе все вроде хорошо ,но и не хорошо...если нужны хорошие бюджетные тормоза то берите! 03 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Avid Elixir 1 Next time buy, something expensive and the other firm. When compared with the mechanics - this excellent brakes, but it is flowing and the wedge block.(В следующий раз куплю, что нибудь подороже и другой фирмы. Если сравнивать с механикой - это отличные тормоза, но бывает текут и клинит колодку.) 15 April 2014

Looking to fit one of these to an old set of forks(marzocchi all mountain 2006/7) for the misses, but these are an old set of forks which are the I.S. type mount.
I'm not sure if I need to buy an adapter or is it supplied with these already?
I know a question like this has been asked here before but I found the answer a bit vague.
Thanks.

Answer: 
This brake comes with a Post Mount adaptor for the applicable rotor size selected.

However for fitting to an IS mount fork, simply select the IS 51mm mount option on the suggested mount adaptor below; then select which rotor size will be ran with the Front brake.

Answer: 
The levers are universal, they can be mounted either way up for left or right hand brakes.
They have identical designs on both sides so it doesn't look out of place.

Answer: 
Yup, just received my Elixir 1 rear brake and it comes with all the bolt and mounts and discs that you need. The instructions demonstrate how to bolt it to an IS mount or post mount so I would assume if you order a front brake it will come with the right adapter.

How to buy

I live in Australia and here the breaks are used in reverse order (front break is the right one and the rear is the left one). I crumpled the left break lever and I have to replace so my doubt is between front or rear break which one I have to buy?

Answer: 
These brakes levers are ambidextrous. So you will need to select the rear to get the correct hose length (1600mm) as the handle mount does not matter as they can be used either side.
